On my Meizu MX4 pictures are of size 5120x2880 ≈ 15 Mpix - there is a known bug related to the camera and size of the pictures in Ubuntu for phones. You might want to change the channel to rc-proposed and check if that helps a bit. Otherwise we need to wait until this bug would be fixed.

It can also be caused by the lack of H.264 codec support on Firefox. Installing the FFmpeg plugin for GStreamer solved this problem for me: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/gstffmpeg-keep sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg

You need to make the xrandr commands run on startup. Unfortunately, a lot of people have trouble making the commands permanent, so that they run on startup, but I'll show you how to do it the easy way: Create a bash script, xrandr.sh for example, and place your xrandr commands into it. It should look something like this #!/bin/bash xrandr --newmode ...

Type your xrandr --newmode and xrandr --addmode commands into a text file. In my case I also needed a xrandr --output command which I also put in this text file. Make this file executable. Then edit (using sudo) /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and in the [SeatDefaults] section add display-setup-script=[path to the text file you made] This will set up and ...

Yes you can, go in : Parameters > Display and set “Scale for menu and title bars” to the value that is best suited for you. It will scale all your desktop while keeping your original 1080p resolution.

I have solved the issue. I managed to create a .xprofile file and saved it to the home directory. I then added xrandr --newmode "1280x1024_60.00" 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712 1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync xrandr --addmode VGA1 "1280x1024_60.00" The only trouble I had was permissions with saving a .xprofile which somehow was not an issue when I did ...

if you're using Gnome on Ubuntu, you can use xrandr command to make screens different from one another. For example: xrandr --output HDMI1 --scale 2x2 --mode 1920x1200 --fb 3840x2160 --pos 0x0 xrandr --output DVI-0 --scale 1x1 --pos 320x2160 --scale 2x2 - make everything on 4K screen twice larger --mode XxY - explicitly set the resolution for screen (not ...

Your problem is that you are specifying a TCP port specification (https://) where commands are expecting a host name. ping uses the ICMP protocol, not TCP. For example: $ ping -c 3 http://slashdot.org ping: unknown host http://slashdot.org $ ping -c 3 slashdot.org PING slashdot.org (216.34.181.45) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from slashdot.org ...

It seems, there is something wrong with your system as xrandr fails to detect the adequate screen resolution. You didn't specify the target resolution you wanted, I assume this is 1920x1080. You can try to force it by following these instructions : 1/ use gtf to create a new mode line gtf 1920 1080 59.9 if you want another resolution gtf res_X res_Y ...

try forcing the output resolution with xrandr. If it doesnt work reboot passing "nomodeset" param to the kernel.

Start the VM, then select from the VirtualBox menus: Devices -> CD/DVD Devices -> VBoxGuestAdditions<version>.iso. Then follow the instructions.

First, login using the text user interface. Then, you can either: Remove your xorg.conf file with sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf Or: Remove the line from the file by editing it with nano -> sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf I would recommend the second option. Both will solve your problem and on reboot you'll have your GUI back.

This article should enable you to set it up correctly - I used it and got xrandr working fine. Unfortunately, a lot of people have trouble making the commands permanent, so that they ...
